The Full Moon, located at Playa Hermosa (beautiful beach), is on the quieter north end of Santa Teresa. Full Moon was custom built in 2010 as our get-away - now we find we are not there as often as we would like, so we will share with you! Located at north end of Santa Teresa in a quieter area. Full Moon is perfect for 4 adults or a (limited to) small family of 5. Both bedrooms are furnished with a queen bed (and one with a single bed as well),and they both have their own garden bathroom. (See our 1 bedroom Half Moon #989649, which is on our property for additional accommodations) Complete comforts of home, but is not your home - it is your Latin American getaway! The large living room is open concept with a large very well equipped kitchen - check out the massive bar! A dining table seats 6-8, with its built-in banquet, so you can invite friends you met on the beach for dinner. Comfortably furnished for a truly laid back Latin American experience. There is air-conditioning in every room and ceiling fans, the kitchen is fully equipped - refrigerator, range/oven, microwave, etc. I love our huge teak deck to take in the sultry air and snooze, read or watch for monkeys, parrots, hummingbirds, iguanas, etc. Beautiful split bamboo lines every ceiling in the home. No alarms necessary! The howler monkeys visit, sometimes twice a day! They troop along the treetops and graze on leaves and flowers of the trees of the property. You can call in for chef services, massages, private yoga or Pilates instructions, arrange surf lessons, go horseback riding at a nearby Eco farm, take a drive and discover why we built in this beautiful area of Costa Rica. Our area was featured in the New York Times Style Magazine - Travel in May 2016.

About Denise Graham
I grew up on Long Island, New York and spent my summers at the beach. Will's father was in the Navy so his life has always been around water. In Virginia Beach when he was around 13 he started surfing and found his passion. When we are not in Costa Rica we live on the Outer Banks of North Carolina in Southern Shores. We live on a canal for kayaking and boating and moments from the Atlantic for Will's surfing, close to Duck, Corolla , Nags Head and an hour from Hatteras. We have been in the Property Management and Real Estate business for 25 years here founded 2 fantastic companies Corolla Classic Vacations (subsequently selling it in '08) & Corolla Real Estate. We know the importance of maintaining and upgrading. Our hearts are always in the arena of taking care of people and houses on the beach and providing the best vacations.
Denise Graham purchased this House in 2010
Why Denise Graham chose Hermosa Cóbano Beach
We first vacationed in Santa Teresa in 2004 and found a place we kept wanting to return to. In 2006 we purchased property on the Ocean in Manzanillo. Then we purchased this piece in 2007 and after careful consideration and collaborations we built Full Moon and Half Moon. We love the location because we can walk to the this beautiful beach. We chose this area because it still holds a relatively rugged feel with its dirt roads and low level development. People from all over the world live and vacation here. Because the area attracts surfers along with health conscience individuals it is forefront with Yoga Retreats Spas, and emerging trends for your body and soul. You will find it to be a very youthful and entrepreneurial area. Wonderful restaurants or chef services provide the best and freshest foods for ultimate dining. Our area was featured in the New York Times Style Magazine - Travel May 2016.
What makes this House unique
Full Moon is understated, but I believe it is also beautiful! Those bamboo ceilings are a constant reminder that you are in the tropics. Lounging on the huge teak deck you are almost always protected from the sun with its massive overhang. Seeing the monkeys in the trees from your shower - awesome! We always meet someone new while we are here as everyone goes to the beach to watch the sunset before dinner.

Very nice, well built property.
Very good location and proximity to Playa Hermosa. Air conditioning worked well.
Loved our stay at Full Moon
We were very comfortable, enjoyed mornings and evenings out on the deck, refreshing a/c mid day. We surfed each morn and evening, easy walk to beach, loved the easy access at Playa Hermosa. As a beginner it was the perfect place to learn. Board rentals right next door, so easy. Ate in a few times, easy trip to restaurants, casual or upscale, whatever you choose. Everyone was so nice, we totally enjoyed our stay. Thanks Denise for sharing your great place!
Thank you for staying at Full Moon, Larry!! Glad it was available for you to visit with your travelling son. You are welcome back anytime! Pura Vida! Denise & Will
Excellent Home in Perfect Location
We spent an amazing week at this home and have nothing but praise. A lovely, fully equipped house with every convenience. Five minute walk to excellent beach, good restaurant across the street and great café next door. Colourful town Santa Teresa, very ugly, but so interesting. We were well taken care of, very comfortable and enjoyed the surroundings. Yes, roads are beyond belief, but that can also be an adventure.
Hola Richard! We were luck you found Full Moon and stayed at our Costa Rican casa. I hope if you return to the area, you consider staying here again! Pura Vida! Denise & Will
Fantastically located opposite a great cafe and a short walk from the beach.
The house was perfectly furnished with everything we needed. We loved the location, a little way from Santa Teresa. And the beach was heavenly. We would loved to return, and definitely recommend it.
Georgina - It was our pleasure to have you stay at our Full Moon House. Thank you for the kind words and so happy to hear your Holidays were great! We hope you do come back one day!!
Pura Vida, Denise & Will
We really enjoyed our stay at Full Moon House. We were greeted by Denise who was very accommodating and hospitable to my family. I would like to take the time and say thank you for being generous and flexible with us. We really appreciated the attention and letting us stay in your home.
We were put in contact with property managers Noelia and Kristi who told us about local restaurants and about a nice tide pool located close by. You’ll have to ask them where that is. :) The kids were able to see tiny lobsters, shrimp, fish, etc in the pools.
The property is beautiful and nestled into the mature palm and banana trees. The bamboo ceilings of the house are a nice architectural touch that make the house one with nature. The outside showers were also a reminder that you are definitely in a tropical place. We loved hearing the howler monkeys in the distance as well as the various species of birds that would fly by the area and take over tree tops.
The house is several minutes away from downtown Santa Teresa which was perfect for my family. We didn’t want the night time noise of the crowds, cars, dirt bikes, ATVs. Instead, we got to listen to various insects, lizards etc. with the occasional rooster crow.
Across the street you have Couleur Café which is French owned restaurant. We had a couple of meals there. They serve dinner only twice a week when we went.
Tiamat Surf Lodge is literally steps down the road (on your way to the Playa Hermosa). They have good prices for rentals and also serve food. My son and I received lessons for 1.5 hours and were able to keep the surf boards for longer.
All in all it was a great vacation and loved Full Moon House.
Pura Vida Denise, Noelia and Kristi.
Eddie It was our pleasure having you and your lovely family stay at Full Moon. So happy to hear you enjoyed yourselves! Like you I love sitting outside and just taking in the sounds and sights local nature offers. Hope to have you return to Full Moon.
Pura Vida! Eddie, Andria, Nicco, Mateo & Mila

Beach is just minutes away. I would want to go in the wet season next time.
